Have you ever seen a cannoli so wee or so precious? I can get full heartedly behind this trend of micro desserts. Usually I only want one or two bites of a dessert and this way you can try a whole bunch of different nibbles and not feel all guilty about it.
Kate and Wills had a seriously fantastic decorator for their epic royal wedding cake. It's fruitcake which I don't really understand, as fruitcake is just not tasty. But it is incredibly gorgeous and gigantic: 8 tiers of different flavored fruitcakes, each with a different decorating scheme. I'm mad impressed.
